    'CTRL-click'/'Right-click' on the Address Book icon in the dock and deslect the 'Open at Login' option.

    Hi alpinepower,

    Do you happen to have omnigrowl installed as well?

    I had the same thing suddenly happen when I removed all my items at startup and started to replace them. I couldn't figure out which one of the startup items was causing it, but by FLUKE launched the prefs of omnigrowl just as it started up (command - comma).

    In there you'll find a check box that says "Launch Address Book" - uncheck it.

    Hope this helps!!
